Nintendo Finally, Officially, Reveals Super Smash Bros. 4‘s Secret Characters


Nintendo has finally put up galleries for three of the 11, as-of-yet-unannounced “secret” Super Smash Bros. 4 characters.

Super Smash Bros. 4 had a whole bunch of “secret” characters, that, due to an early leaker, haven’t really been that secret for well over a month now. Nevertheless, Nintendo stuck to its guns, and has only just now decided to officially unveil the secret fighters on its official site. Well, at least three of them. Obviously, spoilers follow, so if you don’t want these characters to be revealed, turn back now!

Ness, of the EarthBound series, Falco, of the Star Fox series, and Wario, of the Mario franchise, will all return in the new game. All three characters were in the previous game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Falco and Ness date back even further, with Ness being one of the original Nintendo 64 title’s secret characters.

Here’s some images of them in action:

While we’ve seen these characters in the 3DS version of the game via leaked footage and screenshots, this is our first time seeing them in the glorious HD of the Wii U version.

There are still eight additional “secret” characters that gamers have discovered, but have yet to been officially revealed by Nintendo. They are: Gannondorf, Duck Hunt Dog, Mr. Game and Watch, Bowser Jr., Black Pit, Jigglypuff, Dr. Mario, and R.O.B.

Of the 11 secret characters, three are new, and the rest are returning characters from Brawl.

Now that the game is out in the US, what do you think of it? Do you think it works well on the 3DS, or are you holding out for the Wii U version that is set for release this holiday season?
